Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston shocked fans with his unrecognisable new look while taking part in a celebrity softball game over the weekend.

The actor is best known for rocking a shaved head as character Walter White in the acclaimed drama, but sported long hair and a bushy beard during a Major League Baseball All-Stars match.

The Emmy-award winner also added two stick-on moustaches underneath his eyes while he was batting at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

Cranston didn’t take lightly to the umpire’s decision, and ended up kicking dirt on the umpire as well as throwing an entire bucket of gum on him.

Fans went wild for Cranston’s new look, with some even saying his beard was the real star of the charity softball match.
